Arlene Philips reveals diet secrets

Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Philips will no doubt hail taking a spin around the dance floor as the best exercise to lose weight, but she has revealed that she also eats a low-calorie diet to stay trim.

Arlene’s breakfast consists of coffee, jasmine tea and half a piece of sourdough toast with Marmite, she told the Daily Mail.

The newspaper’s nutritionist Zoe Harcombe said that the 67-year-old should try to eat more toast and Marmite, as yeast extract is a great source of B vitamins.

Arlene said that she always eats fruit at midday, including grapes, cherries, tangerines and blueberries, followed by a turkey salad for lunch.

Her dinner typically consists of duck leg confit, sliced beetroot in balsamic vinegar, grilled tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli and a bit of gratin potatoes with a big bowl of lettuce and chicory.

According to the NHS, lettuce is a good food choice for those suffering from flatulence – a condition that colonic irrigation benefits too.

How does your daily diet compare to Arlene’s?

    SOUNDS LIKE AN OK DIET, WOULD HAVE TO CHANGE SEVERAL ITEMS, AS NOT A FAN OF MARMITE, BEETROUT OR BROCCOLI. NOT ONE OF THE BEST PICS OF ARLENE NEITHER

  • Georgia

  • Pasty

    Arlene’s diet sounds like a good one, especially with the fruit snacks during midday. Its certainly better than snacking on chocolate and crisps. However I do not like the sound of her dinner – is tehre anything else you could eat in place of that if I wish to follow this diet?
